    Our Vision
    • To make and deploy mature and equipped followers of Christ

    Our Purpose (why we exist)
    • To challenge Jhi students to walk in a faith of their own

    Our Mission (what we do)
    • We challenge students to Connect, Grow, and Serve

    Our Process (how we do it)

    Create environments that foster relationship with God and His people through:

    • Teaching gospel truth
    • Developing a fun and engaging environment
    • Creating shared experiences between leaders and students
    • Providing opportunities for God’s people to use God’s gifts for God’s glory

    Our Goal (when students leave our ministry)
    • Know Jesus as their Lord and Savior
    • Live in community with God’s People (worship, discipleship, fellowship/friendship)
    • Practice personal worship (God’s Word, prayer, singing, etc)
    • Live a missional life using their God given gifts (heart, mindset, actions)


Discipleship registration is now open, please see below for where to register:

5th grade big group and discipleship meets on Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM. Retreats for this grade fall under KIDS Discipleship. 

Rising 6th - 8th grade students, please click below to register. 

Rising 9th - 12th grade students meet the same time as Jhi discipleship students and are under the Watershed High School ministry, please click below for more information.


Middle School is a time when students really begin to question what they believe and how they fit into the world, therefore this is a great opportunity to encourage them to get involved. As part of our desire to help students connect, grow and serve, we encourage Jhi students to attend corporate worship and to serve in the Nursery, KIDS Discipleship or KidsQuest

6th - 8th Grade

LINK is an engaging environment where middle school students come to hear and share the gospel, hang out with friends, participate in a theme night, climb the rock wall, grab a snack from the cafe, and play video games and basketball. Once a quarter, LINK will be off campus.

Please register and complete the waiver online.

Aug – May | Sundays | 5:00 – 6:30 PM

The evening begins with a combination of games, worship, and teaching, all with the intention of setting up a discipleship group time led by an exceptional leader.

7th & 8th grade, Aug - Apr

Jhi LEAD is a great opportunity for junior high (7th and 8th grade) students to serve the Jhi ministry! Jhi LEAD students will have the opportunity to take ownership and leadership in the Jhi ministry through praying, connecting with peers, growing in your God-given gifts, and serving in an area of the ministry! Lead students must be registered and attending Discipleship on a weekly basis. 

Jhi Retreats
7th & 8th grade

Jhi has two out-of-town retreats per year (Fall Retreat and Surge). We also have Jhi Missions Week (June) and RUSH Conference (July). All are very intentional community-building events to help students foster relationships and are packed full of time without life distractions focused on learning more about Jesus. 

Jhi Parents Serving Opportunities

We have great opportunities for parents to serve in the Jhi Ministry! Our most critical need is for leaders in our Discipleship groups on Sundays. Many parents express concern over leading their student during middle school. Consider serving a group other than your child’s. We need and love for parents to speak into the lives of our middle school students. Developmentally, we’re working with students who are asking big questions. Who am I? Do I belong? Do I have anything significant to contribute? Parent leaders are important!
